Winter Sherpa Services

Paragon Guides has traveled through the 10th Mountain Hut System for more than 30 years. Put our experience to work for you with one of our Sherpa Services.

Sherpa Hut Drop-Off

We can carry 40-65 pounds of gear or supplies into your hut. There is no trail assistance with this service. Ideal for people on hut-to-hut trips not wanting to carry supplies past the first hut, or families that need help caring gear. Paragon Guides does not use Snowmobiles to carry hut supplies. We are human power sherpas.

Day Guide 

A Sherpa plus a Guide. One of our guides will help you carry supplies as well as assist you on the trail in route finding, group management, and first aid (if required).

Trip Consulting 

If you just have a few questions on how the snow conditions are, route choice, what to bring to the hut or need some ideas for planning your own food, Paragon is happy to help for a small fee. $20 for 30 minutes on the phone.

Pricing based on amenities needed and number of days.  Please call for a customized quote.

Shrine Mountain Inn, 10th Mountain, Peter Estin, Fowler-Hilliard, Vance’s Cabin, and Jackal
